FOOTBALL GAME 1966 edition

This is one of the largest board games I have ever handled.  Endorsed by Bart Starr, the game features some colorful game parts and box art and a facsimile autographed photo of Bart Starr.   I can't say much for the game play but it is a nice collector's item.

The game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.  They include all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game.  It appears likely that the game was never played with.  There are actually 2 of each color of the plastic football players included with the game (I didn't discover the 2nd set until after I took the picture).  There is just some minor handling wear to the instructions and the photo.  Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.  Minimal shelf wear.  Just some light rubbing.  No stains or writing, no split corners,  Very little crushing.  I would grade it a 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

MINT (10):
 I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):  Shows virtually no use.  Seldom if ever played.   Perhaps some very light handling creases to the instructions or other minor flaws with the game parts.  Boxes will have only the slightest hint of shelf wear.   EXCELLENT (7-8): The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.  Game parts might have some light handling creases or other signs of careful use.  Board might have just a hint of color loss or dented corners.  Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or perhaps some minor dishing or a very light stain.   VERY GOOD (5-6):  The game was not especially well cared for but it still has faired pretty well.  Game parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly stained or have any serious damage.  Box may have some rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners, minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape.  No major structural damage and artwork will still be generally attractive.  GOOD (3-4): Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as is.  Game parts show considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in usable condition.  Box may have staining, writing, split corners, dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still usable.   POOR (1-2):  Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
